The article discusses the attempts at ethnicization of territorial identities that took place in the regions inhabited by the Komi. The Komi-Zyrian and Komi-Permyak share the same ethnonym (Komi), and some linguists consider the Komi-Zyrian and Komi-Permyak languages to be the two main varieties of the single Komi language. Yet, it is an acknowledged fact that, during the twentieth century, a distinct Komi-Permyak identity was shaped. There were further attempts to develop a separate identity of Izhemtsy for the Pechora area Komi; however, they were less successful.
